Forget that Saudi Arabia is upset with Canada and the spineless leaders of the world who quietly stand by. What about the massive elephant in the room, of Saudi human rights violations being conducted daily in Yemen?
Saudi Arabi a holder of a seat on the human rights council for the UN, has an incredibly poor record in regards to it’s own people as well as in Yemen. It is somewhat idiotic to think that Canada is in some sort of Political war over some activists being jailed, a terrible thing yes, but no where near as sickening as what happens daily in Yemen. Reported on the 9th of August a Saudi military airstrike on a bus which The Houthi health minister, Taha al-Mutawakel, on Friday put the death toll at 51 people, including 40 children, and warned that the number of victims could rise.
Since 2015, Saudi Arabia has been leading a military campaign to restore the internationally recognised government to power and push back the Houthis, who still hold the capital Sana’a.
The war has left nearly 10,000 people dead and unleashed what the UN describes as the world’s worst current humanitarian crisis. It has been reported that an average of 130 children are dying daily from war related disease famine and military attacks. Over 3 million people have been displaced due to the conflict.
